#297, or #556, 2002's "Spider-Man." Ages since I've seen these.

Leaving now to go see #298, or #557, the movie sequel to the Dutch gay romcom sitcom of the same title, "Anne+."

There's a new one out this week, and my understanding is if I've seen the 1978 one (I have) and this one, I'm caught up, because these things get very silly with the alternative continuities, #299, or #558, 2018's "Halloween."

#300, or #559, this one's not in any continuity but its own, it's 1982's "Halloween III: Season of the Witch."


(or 560)

Never let anyone say I make good decisions.

It's 2014's "300: Rise of an Empire."

Leaving now to go see #302, or #561, 2021's "Halloween Kills," which, rude, that's /illegal/.

Let's watch something that, surely, can't possibly be about violence putting somebody's insides somewhere they oughtn't be, #303, or #562, it's 1938 Best Picture nominee "Alexander's Ragtime Band."

#304, or #563, skipping ahead slightly on Cage's career so I can listen to a podcast about this one, it's 2011's "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance."

#305, or #564, let's see what the deal is with 2000's "Final Destination," which I assume is called that because it definitely doesn't have four sequels.

#306, or #565, it's 2003's "Final Destination 2," you know, that sequel the first one definitely doesn't have.

From darkness to darkness, leaving now to go see "Venom: Let There Be Carnage." #307, #566.

#308, or #567, let's see what this dipshit is up to, it's 1985's "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge."

I'm tired of sitting here in the dark, so I'm leaving now to go sit in the dark somewhere else, for #309, or #568, 2021's "The French Dispatch."

#310, or #569, called it, it really is about trains because there's a rollercoaster on the poster, it's 2006's "Final Destination 3."

#311, or #570, it's 2009's "The Final Destination." The definitive article, and thus clearly, the last one-- What? There's a fifth one? Fuck me.

#312, or #571, it's 2011's "Final Destination 5," the *actual* final destina-- They were working on a sixth one before the pandemic? Truly, death is eternal.

#313, or #572, there's really never a time when I'm, like, hell yeah, let's watch this 1937 French war film, but okay, it's 1937 Best Picture nominee "La Grande Illusion."

#314, or #573, no idea what this one's about, I think Kubrick developed this one and Spielberg made it, it's 2001's "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."

#315, or #574, 2010's "Stonehenge Apocalypse," whatever that's about.

#316, or #575, 2016's "Train to Busan." What're the odds it'll actually get to Busan?

#317, or #576, 2020's "The Wolf of Snow Hollow." No idea what this one's about, but the internet says it's a comedy, presumably there's snow, a werewolf, small town shenanigans.

#319, or #578, it's 2019's "It: Chapter Two," or "Clowntown 2: Return of the Clown to Town."

#320, or #579, spooky season lives on, because I kinda took a break in the middle and I have some horror left I was gonna watch, it's 2003's "One Missed Call."

#321, or #580, 2013's "Warm Bodies," which I think is a zombie thing, :beecat: called it "hipstery," and I think it was all over Tumblr for a little bit when it came out?

Already seated for #322, or #581, 2021's greyest film, "Eternals."

Already seated for #323, or #582, 2021's "Last Night in Soho." More like Lunchtime in Soho.

Leaving now to go see #324, or #583, because it's finally playing in theatres here, 2021's "Pig."

More leftovers from spoopy season, #325, or #584, it's 2007's "Halloween," the second of three movies called just that, but this one's a reboot and not in continuity with the other two, which *are* in continuity with each other.

#326, or #585, let's see how much more unpleasant this gets, it's 2009's "Halloween II."

I did genuinely like "Army of the Dead," so #327, or #586, 2021's "Army of Thieves."

Already seated for #329, or #588, 2021's "Spencer."

Do I give a single shit about Princess Diana? Not even half of one. Will I watch Kristen Stewart pretend to be her for two hours? Yes, please, absolutely.

#330, or #589, 2008's "Synechdoche, New York," whatever that's about. Misspellings, presumably.

#331, or #590, 1987's "Planes, Trains & Automobiles." No boats, tanks, or spaceships allowed.

Leaving now for #332, or #591, first movie since the start of Desert Bus, it's 2021's β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. I don't know!

Because it's a Sneak Preview screening, where they show a movie early that's coming out give or take this week or next week.

Best guesses poll:

#333, or #592, 1988's "Midnight Run," because it came up a few times in Letterboxd reviews of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," and I figured, well, why not.

Gotta pick the List back up, it's one of the last two Christopher Nolan movies I haven't seen, #334, or #593, 2002's "Insomnia."

We Cage ever onwards, the year is 2002, it's John Woo's "Windtalkers," which I think is about WW2 Navajo code talkers, and which I reckon is probably pretty violent? #335, or #594.


#337, or #596, I think this is the first movie I was aware of as a kid that everyone seemed to be Talking About, but then the commercials seemed very scary to 11-year old me, it's 2002's "Signs."

Β· Β· 2 Β· 0 Β· 0

I don't remember what the twist in this one is supposed to be, so nobody tell me.

It can't just be "it's aliens," I feel like that's the premise.

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"Some show's on every station."

Okay, I feel like crop circles, even worldwide similar ones, wouldn't get total media blackout news attention.

"How can so many people be in on it?"

*gestures at the internet* people do be like that, actually

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"They are signs intended to be seen from the sky."

just viral marketing innit

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

Mel Gibson is really letting this bother him, maybe HE'S an alien.

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"Is that him?"

that's gotta be the single most blatantly called out director cameo in history

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"You heard the voices, right?"

you've heard of people seeing dead people, now get ready to see people hearing space voices

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"Looks a little like our house, doesn't it."

and what's this book called, oh, The Art of 2002's Signs, funny title

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

twist guess: the aliens are in cahoots with the people making 2002 motion picture "Signs" and the crop circles are indeed a viral marketing campaign

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

but what does the water have to do with anything

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

the water was the aliens all along

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

no, this is M Night Shyamalan and Mel Gibson plays a former priest, uhhhh

the aliens are jesus?

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"It's happening."

no that's not until 2008

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"Swing away, Merrill."

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

oh, not really a twist, huh

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

tremendous picture, tho

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

don't reckon I would-a got on with it much if I'd seen it age 11

Leaving now to go see #338, or #597, 2021's "House of Gucci."

well that was tremendous
terrific picture

great time at the movies

probably career best work from almost everyone involved, but not Jared Leto, who turns in absolute clown school dropout shit, just ridiculous

thought it was Chris Pratt rehearsing Mario for a few minutes

but despite that, still thought it was absolutely terrific!

We Spielberg ever onwards and upwards, with #339, or #598, 2002's "Catch Me If You Can."

Man, this kind of lengthy title sequence has really gone outta style, huh. (I blame LOST.)

it's funny that in 2021 we know for pretty sure this dude's biggest actual notorious con is probably conning his way into a reputation as a notorious con man

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ "Catch Me If You Can" (2002) 

You know, I've had classes I ended up basically teaching, but you don't see me flying airline planes about it.

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ "Catch Me If You Can" (2002) 

It seems pretty easy to fake your way into being a pilot, it's a miracle Pan Am had any real ones before like 1997.

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ "Catch Me If You Can" (2002) 

oh my god, out through the airplane bathroom

I continue to Cage ever onwards -- twice? -- with #340, or #599, 2002's "Adaptation."

a non-fictionalised fiction about fictionalising non-fiction

I did consider watching "300" again, but I'm not Arkham Asylum level unhinged.

Fully expecting my stance on this one to be "I don't know why everyone was so mad about these sequels."

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

love all these randoes in the sewer

makes the world bigger, but also extremely feels like they're all in an MMORPG pulling from the same limited set of wearable items

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

I should-a watched Animatrix before this, probably, but I felt like this was a better #600.

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

There's way too many lit torches in this cave for me to be comfortable with the way people are jumping and sexing around.

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

"Good night, Zion. Sweet dreams."

good night giant penny

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

"You do not truly know someone until you fight them."

ah so that's why I know myself so well

πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

all of these fights obviously kick ass

tremendous picture, action kicks a tremendous amount of ass, everything very straightforward

#342, or #601, 2021's "Long Story Short," which I understand is about, *squints at notes* yes, that's right, time bullshit.

⌚ "Long Story Short" (2021) 

"What if you woke up, and a whole year had gone by, like that."

if time passed would that be fucked up or what

⌚ "Long Story Short" (2021) 

"Groundhog Day?"

I mean. Not really, he skips forward, he doesn't repeat.

⌚ "Long Story Short" (2021) 

god, the letters


⌚ "Long Story Short" (2021) 

well at least he didn't actually put money in the picture bit of the wallet

⌚ "Long Story Short" (2021) 

so who's, like. who's running Rafe Spall when the version we're watching isn't around

I assume he's only Time Skip Rafe when we're seeing him and he's Normal Flow of Time Rafe when we're not? like, Time Skip Rafe doesn't pick up the slack every year and then gets reset

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

@Alexis I dunno, remember when a bunch of people dressed as clowns at the same time and everyone went on about it?

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

@kurt Hm, that's a good point, I forgot about horror- and terror-clowns.

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ "Catch Me If You Can" (2002) 

@Alexis who says they did?

re: πŸ’»πŸ“ž "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) 

@Alexis ah so that's why I don't know anyone...

@Alexis I just finished Revolutions. First rewatch since it was new, I think.

@naga I had them on DVD back in the day, but it's been long enough ago that I don't really remember anything.
